The snowmobile manufacturers have developed a close working relationship with the Canadian and American avalanche training and awareness teams. With increased education among snowmobilers, the number of snowmobile-related avalanche fatalities and occurrences has fallen dramatically.

With winter approaching, several groups, including the snowmobile manufacturers, are working on expanding the avalanche awareness effort as more and more riders from outside the mountainous regions are riding in the beautiful mountain terrain, which also poses new and significant challenges.

The US Forest Service Team has put together a brochure which highlights some of the key avalanche safety issues. See the attached PDF.
